Office Official: How To Wear Shorts To Work


Yes, you can definitely wear shorts to the office (unless your office dress code explicitly outlaws them)! The trick to it is finding the right length and adding appropriate extras to tie your look together and dress it up a bit. If you work somewhere conservative, wear a shorts suit to work. Trust us, the look is so fresh and pulled-together, you’ll love it. Today, July 9th, and tomorrow, July 10th, all of our shorts are just $19.50 — there’s no better time to give this look a whirl!

Balancing Act: Our Boardwalk Shorts are a little longer if you’d like to show less leg (plus they’re so versatile — easy to wear on the weekend.) Add our silk cotton cardi and Abstract Lace shell, plus a statement necklace and pumps. 

Suit Up: Grab our Textured Shorts and the matching jacket. A bright shell and high-heeled sandals keep this look youthful and on trend. Want to see what this looks like on? Check out our Instagram!

Casual Chic: If you work from home or in a super-casual environment, you can pull off our Relaxed Side Button Shorts – add our Mini Pineapple Print Short Sleeve Top, plus canvas wedges to elevate the look.
